"The curses of the city drove me out.
The evil swallowing ignoramuses...
They locked me up with chains & cut my flesh.
Sweet music, whisper in my ear & lead me to liberation.
Shoot me again forgotten child, now a pissed off old man, half dead, half drunk, drinking cheap liquor."

-Nettie August


Digging deep into my past, trying to make sense of the trauma from the very people that birthed me.

Hello everyone! Happy New Year! I hope you all had a blessed and relaxed Sunday.

I’ve created a new lettrs account. My name is still Nettie August, but I just don’t have a profile picture yet. Feel free to follow the new account so that we can stay in touch!

I just felt like it was time for a new beginning. I’m going to inquire about removing this account so that I only have the one.

Xoxo,
Nettie

Devastation.
Isolation in the presence of many.
Time rewound, yet in present day.
Parts of humanity closed.
Three apps open...
Trying to speak a language of desperation to those who will listen.
Pleading together as one people, for many.

What is the most terrifying of all to me,
Could be one of my biggest blessings.
I cannot forsake my future riches by operating from a mentality of poverty and emptiness.

The province of the east side is poison to my heart and acid on my flesh...
A bitter bite of sourness on my tongue.
It holds me hostage---
Then steals and betrays.
It feeds off of an unwilling host with a good heart.

I very much want to leave...
And kind of not want to come back.

Do not try to stop me,
Your deceptive opinion has pierced me quite enough.
I will simply tell you goodbye,

And if you never see me again...

You will know why.

Without the validation of others.

I was taught to fear my own skin and my own sense of self.

I was molded into something that I do not recognize.

Trying to please others...
Not only did I fail, but I lost myself along the way.

2 Timothy 2:11-13
New Living Translation (NLT)

11 This is a trustworthy saying:

If we die with him,
    we will also live with him.
12 If we endure hardship,
    we will reign with him.
If we deny him,
    he will deny us.
13 If we are unfaithful,
    he remains faithful,
    for he cannot deny who he is.

Arresting lyrics, hold me.
Magical melody, kiss me.
Voice of richness keep me company while they are away.
My nomadic tendencies cause me to vacation near the ocean of your words.

I don't smile, because he broke my heart.
That is the day that my compassion was held hostage...
And every good emotion was paralyzed.
I don't smile at anyone else.
I wouldn't want anyone to think that I'm capable of love.

I am so angry with myself for simply being in love,
But that love was bondage...
The senseless weight was like a sweet embrace...

My heart bleeds tonight. My eyes burn with tears...my stomach is in knots looking at the future.

Tears fall in repentance and my knees hit the floor in prayer.
I just want to be healed...

And live the life my Creator intended.

Recently I was thinking...
I can have all the money in the world, but if I don't have love, then what am I even doing?
I could live a hundred years and have all riches and delicacies imaginable, but when I leave this earth, they may ask..."Who was she?"
Are money, things, likes, and vain approval all that matter to me?
Or is it a free life? A life of righteousness and a life of blessing?

Dr. Vernon says that when Christ comes back, He is not interviewing...He is looking for the blood. He is looking to see who has Him. He is not looking to see who is the richest or who has the most stuff. He is looking to see who has Him. Money and possessions are not everything, and are only temporary. Ther...

It breaks my heart that hate has become such a popular choice in this world.
But let us remember that love is a choice too.
Despite the evil and darkness...
I choose love.

I don't need some celebrity approval or someone to tell me to look like a model. I am not a plastic Barbie...I am all too real. Just because you are blinded in your stupidity---or maybe just ignorance, I matter.
Forgive yourself.
I forgive you.

Remember there is someone, somewhere in this world that will never be able to forget you...
Be cautious of the memory that you leave them with.

An inhabitant of the earth...
A blessing to someone.
I am honored that God, who has created all...created me too.

You "welcomed" me.

Yet collectively, out of difference and misunderstanding you call me a coward, but in order to win the approval of the masses, you share a plethora of of "opinions" on every platform. You began with support, but then with a polite attack you condemn me…and I don’t know who you are anymore. Fully accept me, or reject me to the fullest!

This is just my interpretation from my perspective.
Just as you have yours.
It is cloudy in my eyes...
And I am cloudy in yours.

Maybe one day through dignified conversation, we can begin to understand.

I respect you,
But we just disagree.

I see your thick, wavy hair of a multitude of shades of mahogany...
Your skin enriched by the sun...your smile that blinds me...
And I want to know you---
But I want more.
I want to feel the fullness of your spirit and the comfort of your love.

I just want my melanin to overflow like expensive caramel and fine chocolate...
Kissed by the sun and baked in brown sugar.
I want my hair--beautiful, thick, and defiant of gravity.
I want to be illuminated by the finest crushed diamonds.
I want to be forever unbothered -And untouched by the paintbrush of others, for I will already be complete.

I guess my thoughts are not valued,
My words are not good enough...
My desperate plea is ignored.
I am not appropriate,
According to the most bougie of the bunch.

Stop manipulating my work.
It is for me and not for you.
Do not ever attempt to explain my own art to me...
It is as if I am explaining to you, your mother's pains of labor.

A spectator lecturing the artist on the artwork?
Unheard of!
Do not hinder me with your rules, for I am good and damn free!
So sir, of unknown circumstances, please leave me alone.
Leave me alone with my paper and pen...
And maybe we could get along.
